The 2014 State Band Championships were a fantastic success, with bands from all over the state, and one from South Australia, taking part.

Where Do I Begin? The Voice of Shirley Bassey – Review

See below an excerpt of a review on Where do I Begin? The Voice of Shirley Bassey with the Footscray-Yarraville City Band led by Phillipa Edwards.

The Las Vegas showroom was dark. The band was ready. Then Shirley Bassey walked onstage, greeted the crowd like old friends, and a night of musical magic commenced. In truth, it wasn’t actually Vegas, and it wasn’t actually Shirley Bassey, but it sure felt like it was.
